Create an Inukshuk
An Inukshuk is a figure found throughout the Arctic, made of stones or boulders piled in some fashion and often shaped like a human figure. These beautiful shapes and figures date from 2400 to 1800 BCE in the southwest region of Baffin Island and were created as a means of communication. These directional markers in the shape of a person, signify safety, hope and connection.
In the Arctic, Inukshuk’s (meaning “ in the likeness of a human”) were placed to act as “helpers”, navigational aids, or message centers pointing to where caches of food could be found and how to survive.
While Inukshuk are typically constructed of stone, and in this program, beautiful pieces of wood are utilized to create and reflect on your own meaning of the Inukshuk.
